At Starbucks, we spend a lot of time focused on coffee quality, and with good reason – it is at the heart of our most popular beverages. But if our signature Espresso Roast is the heart, then great steamed milk is the body that holds our espresso beverages together.
Over the next month, Starbucks is rolling out a new custom steaming pitcher to help our expert baristas make even better steamed milk for your beverage. The secret is in the shape. It’s tapered and concave, allowing for the “whirlpool” motion needed for steaming perfection.
Stop by your Starbucks store tomorrow in recognition of World AIDS Day! For every handcrafted beverage sold at participating Starbucks stores in the U.S. and Canada in support of World AIDS Day, Starbucks will make a five cent contribution to The Global Fund. Since the launch of our partnership with (RED)™ in December 2008, Starbucks has contributed nearly $10 million to The Global Fund to help those living with HIV/AIDS in Africa.
Thank you for your support!

Our holiday beverages have been creating merry moments for customers since we first launched Eggnog Latte 25 years ago. So, we take making any changes to this Holiday Beverage tradition very seriously. That’s why it’s so exciting to be able to bring you a beverage you have been asking for on My Starbucks Idea We invite you to try our brand NEW Skinny Peppermint Mocha!!!
Skinny Peppermint Mocha is a lighter version of the Peppermint Mocha. Made with espresso, nonfat milk, sugar-free Peppermint Syrup and Skinny Mocha sauce. With only 100 calories in a Tall (12 fl. oz.) it’s a holiday treat you can feel good about.

It’s time to “fall back in” to our usual routine. Summer vacations have come and gone, the kids are (finally) back in school and we’re settling back into our habitual schedules.
Fortunately, there’s something to spice things up a little: the return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte!
Tazo® Chai Tea Lattes mix the exotic with the familiar. This beverage starts with a rich, full-flavored Assam tea and blends five spices that have been used in Indian chai recipes for decades: ginger, cardamom, star anise, cloves and cinnamon. The blend is a “classic masala chai” – the Tazo recipe adds sweetness with honey, organic cane sugar and a hint of vanilla.
Like most of our beverages, the Tazo® Chai Tea Latte is customizable. If you want to savor some extra cinnamon or try it very vanilla, just ask. One of the more popular customizations you’ve told us about is to add a shot of espresso for an extra kick. There’s an iced version perfect for warm days. And there are a full range of milk options, including soy.
The summer sun is heating up and what better way to beat the heat than celebrating the return of treat receipt! This is the perfect way to cool off on any hot summer day with a cold Grande hand-crafted drink for only $2 (plus applicable tax). My favorite summer drink is our Tazo® Iced Passion Tea Lemonade with its blend of hibiscus herbal tea and tangy lemonade sweetened to perfection. This pink hued drink pairs perfectly with flip flops, sunglasses and a sunny summer day.
And, starting this year, our friends in Canada can take advantage of treat receipt – same refreshing beverages, same price $2 (plus applicable tax). Many of you already know the drill, but it’s easy to take advantage of Treat Receipt, just come in anytime before 2 p.m. for your regular morning drink and return after 2 p.m. with your receipt in hand for any cold hand crafted beverage for only $2 (plus applicable tax).
Treat Receipt is available at participating stores.
Frappuccino® blended beverage fans, your friends on the music team here at Starbucks have a gift for you.
Beginning June 6, when you purchase a Frappuccino® blended beverage, your barista will hand you a free 10-Song Summer Mix playlist of our favorites, available for download on iTunes while supplies last. Some of the artists may be familiar while others may be discoveries, but there's something for every summer activity.
Death Cab for Cutie's breezy "Underneath the Sycamore" (U.S. only) may prompt you to pull out a blanket and basket and enjoy that Mocha Coconut Frappuccino® blended beverage picnic-style with a friend, while Parts & Labor's "Rest" will likely cause you to open the sunroof, crank the music and head for open road. Booker T. Jones’s twist on "Just a Friend" (featuring the song’s writer, Biz Markie, as well as Sharon Jones, and the National's Matt Berninger) may spark a spontaneous dance party, so proceed with caution. Our friends We Are Augustines (former members of one of our favorites of all time, Pela), will make you want to give your bicycle (or motorcycle, if singer Billy McCarthy has any say) a spin on a dusty country road.
Summer is finally heating up and many of you have already played around with all the different ways to customize your Frappuccino® Blended Beverage and discovered new favorites. But do you know about all the different ways you can customize your Frappuccino?! You can build your beverage completely from scratch or you can take an old favorite like Caramel Frappuccino® Blended Beverage or Strawberries and Crème Frappuccino® Blended Beverage and customize it with any of these options:
Frappuccino® blended beverage lovers, we heard you – and we are excited to announce the return of Happy Hour to Starbucks!
Starting May 6, 2011 and running through May 15, 2011 come into participating stores between 3-5 p.m. for a half-price Frappuccino® blended beverage of your choice.
This year we really want you to mix it up! Customize your drink to be just the way you want it. You can flavor it up with an old favorite like caramel, enjoy a new dynamic duo like our Mocha Coconut Frappuccino® blended beverage or make any combination of flavor offerings. Mix up your milk with 2%, nonfat or soy. Coffee it up with an extra pump of coffee or a shot of espresso. And don’t forget to top it off with a little bit of fun in the form of whipped cream, drizzles or sprinkles.
We hope to see you there. For a daily Happy Hour text message reminder, text MIXIT (standard text & data rates may apply) to 44264 (In Canada text MIXIT to 98075). Afternoons just got a little sweeter!
